MSU Takes Company Tour 

07-02-2016 12:27

Last semester, the Mississippi State University chapter visited Lexmark International, Inc. located in Lexington, Kentucky. Lexmark is a global developer, manufacturer and supplier of printing solutions and products. The group met with compensation director Betsy Larson who discussed the importance of HR in an organization, and outlined how to find an HR position using good networking techniques. A meeting with SHRM Area II manager and chapter advisor Shelly Prochaska gave the students new ideas to increase involvement in their chapter projects. The group then took a tour of the Lexmark facilities and its various departments. Company tours are a great way for students to view the human resource function in real-world situations, plus they earn those very important Merit Award points!
